How to get to Dublin

Dublin is a vibrant city, steeped in history and culture. It is located on the East coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey.
How to get there:

The city centre is only a short drive from Dublin airport and for those who prefer to travel by ferry, Dublin Port is centrally located. Dublin is serviced by excellent transport links – Dublin Bus, Irish Rail, DART local train service and the LUAS tram service. In addition, private bus companies operate to and from the airport and other locations in Ireland.

 

What to do in Dublin:

Dublin is a warm and welcoming city, famous for its hospitality. Dublin offers world class dining options, or you can experience the famous Irish “craic” in one of the many pubs. With historical buildings like Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College and Dublin Castle; tourist attractions like the Guinness Storehouse, the National Gallery of Ireland and Kilmainham Gaol, there is plenty to see and do. Explore the city by foot, by e-bike or via the Dublin Hop-on-Hop-off Bus Tour. Take a stroll in one of the city parks, like St. Stephen’s Green or Merrion Square, immerse yourself in cultural events – music, theatre, film, and the arts or indulge yourself in some retail therapy in the Grafton Street area.
